Tamiya: Modeler’s Knife Versus Design Knife

I was really curious about this two hobby knives of Tamiya so I ended up buying them both. What is exactly the difference between the 2? Let us find out since I want to open them up now anyway. I bought them because I like the cover/cap included. The cover is important to prevent rusting of the blade (though many extra blades are included). And btw, sorry for the background. I took the pictures on my computer table.

Both 298 pesos. Bought at Lil’s SM Mega

Comparison of blades. Left is the design knife blade and Right is the modeler’s knife blade.
Design knife’s blade is smaller.

Conclusion:

Modeler’s Knife – general purpose use

Design Knife – for more detailed work. Seems to allow better control on situation that calls for perfection. Though I think the other one is capable, but being smaller has its purpose.
